  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Fully practices Friday

    Oliver (knee) practiced with Atlanta's first-team defense during 11-on-11 drills Friday, Ashton Edmunds of the team's official site reports. Oliver worked with the Falcons' first unit for the first time this training camp after participating in a limited capacity during the team's minicamp in June. The fifth-year cornerback totaled 11 tackles and three passes defended before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in October that limited him to just four games in 2021. Oliver previously worked with the second-team defense, and he should compete with Casey Hayward and Dee Alford for a starting role heading into the regular season.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Remains without timetable

    Oliver (knee) remains without a timetable for return, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports. Oliver had surgery after suffering a season-ending knee injury in October, but he has yet to return to the practice field. Although he has no official timetable, head coach Arthur Smith has praised the intensity with which Oliver has attacked his rehab. In four games in 2021, Oliver made 11 tackles and deflected three passes while forcing and recovering a fumble.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Re-signs with Falcons

    Oliver signed a one-year contract with Atlanta on Friday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

He totaled 11 tackles (seven solo), three pass defenses, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery last year, and he should be healthy heading into offseason activities.

    Oliver (knee) will undergo surgery and miss the rest of the 2021 season, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Placed on IR

    The Falcons placed Oliver (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Oliver will be forced to miss at least the next three weeks after the move to IR, but he could be sidelined longer. The 25-year-old corner registered 11 tackles, three pass deflections, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over the first four games of the season. During his absence, expected A.J. Terrell and T.J. Green to see increased playing time.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Doubtful to return Sunday

    Oliver (knee) is doubtful to return to Sunday's contest against Washington, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports. Oliver suffered a knee injury during the first half of Week 4. The 25-year-old corner played 52 defensive snaps for the Falcons in Week 3. A.J. Terrell and T.J. Green will likely see increased roles during Oliver's absence.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Ends 2020 campaign with 70 tackles

    Oliver collected two tackles (including one for loss) during last Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers, and he wrapped up the 2020 campaign with 70 tackles, six pass deflections, a forced fumble and one sack. Oliver has been unable to collect an interception over 188 coverage targets the past two seasons, surrendering 12 passing touchdowns and 8.8 yards per target during that span. The Colorado standout went without a game absence between 2019 and 2020, but he also conceded a passer rating of 113 or higher in each season. That's after Oliver held opponents to an 89.1 passer rating and two TDs (over 27 targets) his rookie year. The 2018 second-round draft choice is under contract with Atlanta for one more season before potentially becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2022.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Absent from injury report

    Oliver (cramps) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Oliver left last weekend's loss to the Buccaneers in the second half due to cramps, but it appears that the issue hasn't carried over to practice. He's set to suit up against the Chiefs on Sunday, and if Darqueze Dennard (quadriceps) misses another contest, Oliver could benefit from increased snaps.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Listed as questionable for Sunday

    Oliver (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Oliver was able to practice Thursday after sitting out the day prior, and he still has a shot to play Sunday. If the 23-year-old is unable to go, it would mark his first game missed this season.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Nursing shoulder injury

    Oliver did not participate in Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury. Oliver's shoulder issue is a bit of a mystery after the starting cornerback played 80 percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps Sunday, but his status for Week 15 is now in question. If the shoulder remains bothersome for Oliver, Jordan Miller and Blidi Wreh-Wilson could see additional reps opposite Kendall Sheffield.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Defensive role fading

    Oliver's decreased snap count in Week 7 was a personnel decision made by the Falcons' coaching staff, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports. In a year that began with optimism for the second-year cornerback out of Colorado, Oliver has struggled in coverage and has resultantly seen his role in Atlanta's defensive rotation decrease. He played on at least 93 percent of the Falcons' defensive snaps between Weeks 2 and 6, but last Sunday against the Rams only fielded 59 percent of the snaps despite Desmond Trufant (toe) being inactive for the game. Oliver has zero forced turnovers and has gone four straight games without a pass deflection as Atlanta prepares to take on Seattle's Russell Wilson in Week 8, who has averaged better than 275 passing yards per game with an overall 15:1 TD:INT ratio this season.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Makes enormous fourth-down tackle

    Oliver collected four solo tackles and two assists during Sunday's 24-20 win against Philadelphia. The Falcons defense showed up in Week 2 by holding Philadelphia's ground attack to 2.3 yards per carry, forcing three turnovers and conceding a QBR of just 45.1 to 2017 MVP candidate Carson Wentz. Oliver may have provided the most decisive play of the night, wrapping up Zach Ertz short of the sticks on the Eagles' last gasp drive to force a turnover on downs and secure the win for the Falcons. The upcoming Week 3 matchup for Atlanta's secondary is no walk in the park; they face Jacoby Brissett and his impressive 18:8 career TD:INT ratio.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Ready to take on starting role

    Oliver said after Thursday's OTA workout that he's feeling more confidence this year than he did heading into his rookie campaign, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "It's probably going to be like that throughout my career from year to year," Oliver admitted. "But yeah, that's the biggest jump that I made. Becoming more confident in the scheme of things." Atlanta's patience with Oliver was rewarded in 2018, as the second-round draft choice grew into a reliable component of the secondary after a shaky start to the year. Oliver's development was a key reason for Atlanta's improvement from 304.3 passing yards allowed per game over its first eight outings, to 214.9 passing yards allowed per game over the final eight. Both his on-field audition as well as his football IQ factored into the decision, but Atlanta's front office saw enough in Oliver to bestow upon him the No. 2 cornerback role. Expect Oliver to field around 80-to-85 percent of the team's defensive snaps in 2019 after handling 21.9 percent of the snaps as a rookie.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Will start Sunday

    Oliver will start in place of Robert Alford (ankle) in Sunday's game at Washington, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Alford was ruled out for Sunday -- breaking a string of 46 straight starts -- providing Oliver the opportunity for the second start of his career. The Redskins will be without running back Chris Thompson (ribs) and wide receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle), which could create an increased reliance for Adrian Peterson and the run game.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: May register second career start Sunday

    Oliver is in line to start Sunday against the Redskins if Robert Alford (ankle) is ruled out, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. Oliver will make his first start since Week 4 if Alford is unable to suit up Sunday, although it's worth noting head coach Dan Quinn was unwilling to rule Alford out following Thursday's practice. In that Week 4 shootout against Cincinnati, Oliver let A.J. Green slip past him for a last-second touchdown reception as the Bengals pulled out a 37-36 victory. The Redskins aren't the most pass-heavy bunch (22nd in pass attempts with 32.6 per game), but veteran signal caller Alex Smith may put the ball up a bit more than usual to try and expose the inexperienced defensive back in coverage.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Healthy for Week 3

    Oliver (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Olived has logged two full practices this week after being sidelined for the first two games of the regular season due to an ankle injury. The rookie second-rounder is trending in the right direction to make his NFL debut against the Saints on Sunday.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Sidelined Week 2

    Oliver (ankle) was inactive for Sunday's win over the Panthers, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Oliver had been questionable in the lead-up to Sunday's divisional game after sitting out Week 1 with the same injury. For the time being, he should be considered questionable for the team's Week 3 tilt against the Saints. Oliver was limited at practice late last week, indicating that he's progressing through his recovery and could return any day now.

  • Falcons' Isaiah Oliver: Ruled out for season opener

    Oliver (ankle) will not play against the Eagles on Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Oliver has been limited for the last week due to an ankle injury and will not recover in time for Thursday's season opener. Though Oliver was once in the battle for a starting job, it seems likely that the 2018 second-rounder will begin the season in a rotational role when healthy.
